What’s New at Dianna’s Writing Den
Posted by Dianna Gunn
You might have noticed the new layout. I’ve chosen a lighter colour scheme and a theme that will allow me to further customize my blog. And this is just the beginning of the upcoming changes here at Dianna’s Writing Den.
The first thing is that I’m bringing back my series of author interviews, this time focusing mainly on Musa authors. I have enough interviews to last me well into January and even a couple guest posts to share with you, and I’m fairly confident I will be able to extend the series beyond that. These interviews will go up on Wednesday.
I’ve also decided to re-introduce prompts to the blog, but this time it will be every two weeks. Every other week I will post a list of 3-5 paying short fiction markets. One of my goals for next year is to write and submit more short fiction, and these posts will serve the purpose of keeping markets in my mind. I hope you’ll join me in the quest to write and submit more short stories.
I’m still finishing my novel and we’ve still got a few weeks before the new year begins, but I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year for this blog. I plan to open the new year with a series of posts about editing a novel, and then we’re going to get into the messy business of creating a world for a new novel. And of course, I will be running the Dear Diary Workshop again, hopefully this time with some improvements.
Over the next couple of weeks we’re going to talk about finishing that darn novel and re-evaluating your writing goals for the new year.
I hope you’re as excited for 2012 as I am, and I hope that you’ll continue along with me on my journey.
What are some of your plans for the new year?
